Just had surgery yesterday

Postby Garfield6369 » 10 Jan 2018, 20:24

I just wanted to share. For anyone who is scared to go in for the surgery, do not think any longer!!!
I am only 1 day post op and I feel normal!!!! I have had the best experience. Ever since waking up the pain was less than living with a fissure. Ask me any questions

What stage of healing are you at now? I had anal skin tag removed the same day as you and thought healing was going well but now there is swollen red lump, it is painful to sit and the leakage has given me a rash :(

Hello.
I had a rough week! After I posted this, the pain begun.
I also had the skin tag removed.
Now - a week later, I am much better. No pain during the day and very minimal after BM.
I do not have much swelling but I bleed during BM. Not sure if this is normal, my doctor seems to think its ok.
Did you have LIS too? Or just tag removal?

Hello Garfield I also underwent LIS and skin tag removal on the same day as yours after 3 days of surgery there was lot of pain after bM and mild pain for 1-2 hours today on my 9th day(first day after surgery) there was Little pain after bM so happy for that. I am also having bleeding but it was less today my CRS said it's normal. Hoping for better days ahead. My post op appointment is in 8 days may be doc gives some good news. Wish you well and hopefully we all recover soon and get back to normal life. Keep updating about the progress

Glad to see you happy. I sure slowly with Time it will get even better. My only issue which is bothering me is that after bM there is lot of pain with burning sensation that was not their before LIS I guess may be it is the tag site. But the pain subsides quickly within a minute or two, that's a relief. There was pain yesterday but it is not there today. Sitz bath helps with it, thanks to that :p
